Maritime history apps ahoy!

A new series of smartphone apps aims to reveal the maritime history of London. The free apps provide directions and information for a series of walking tours, taking in sights such as HMS Belfast and the Thames Barrier (pictured). The tours, which can also be modified by users, are available to download. Visit www.londonships.org.ukexplore

Camera with added dimensions

Interactive whiteboard developers Smart Technologies has launched a digital camera that can mix 2D and 3D images.

The Document Camera 330 reads digital markers on physical objects, such as flash cards, to show 3D content. The enriched images can then be displayed live on an interactive whiteboard or saved into a gallery for later review.

Animal kingdom stands alone

A series of stories, videos, games and interactive exercises that aims to bring the animal kingdom to life for young children is being made available for a wider audience. Animal Explorers had previously only been for those on the English Campus platform, but now educational publishers Macmillan is launching a standalone version, which comes with worksheets, web projects and teachers' notes.
